After three fights over the last three years featuring nine combined knockdowns and a wealth of unforgettable moments, British fighter Tyson Fury finally ended his epic rivalry with Deontay Wilder with one final punch during the 11th round of their heavyweight fight Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fury got up from the canvas twice in the fourth round and eventually stopped Wilder with a devastating right, retaining his World Boxing Council heavyweight title. He had defeated Wilder back in February of 2020 to earn the championship belt.
After the fight, the undefeated boxer (31-0-1, 22 KOs) nicknamed “The Gypsie King” gave a post-fight interview ringside with BT Sports Box Office. After the interviewer asked the first question, Fury replied, “I would like to say thank you to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. In the mighty name of Jesus, I won this fight tonight again. I give him the glory. He gives me the victory.”
During the post-fight interview, Fury wore a baseball cap emblazoned with the words, “Jesus: El Rey Viene,” a Spanish phrase that means “Jesus, the King is coming.”
“I was down a couple of times. I was hurt. He’s a strong puncher. He is a tough man. I was hitting him with some big shots. And my Lord and Savior rose me to my feet tonight to give him the glory,” Fury added.
